Rastafarian Farming on St. Maarten, St. Martin

St. Maarten

Ras Bushman’s Freedom Fighters Restaurant on the Bush Road (near to the Daily Herald Building) is a vegan restaurant where fresh produce from Bushman’s three local farms is served with natural wooden utensils. Bushman started planting in 1985 under the guidance of his grandfather and he now drives up to his farms on a daily basis to tend to soursop, kinip, mango, tamarind, sugar apple, noni, and avocado as well as herbs like basil, mint, sage and oregano. Outside of farming, Bushman is a vigorous campaigner to revive local planting.

At the entrance to Bellevue on the road between Cole Bay and Marigot, a plot of farmland provided by the French Mayor is where the Solidarity Rastafari Organization grows its herbs, fruits and vegetables.

Neatly organized rows of herbs such as tarragon, thyme, sweet marjoram, vervaine and parsley and lettuce are the first phase of planting. Next, the Foundation will plant a variety of fruit trees. The purpose of the Foundation is to prove that St. Martiners can grow crops. In 2008 the Foundation threw open its doors to the public for its first agricultural show.

All of the Solidarity Foundation’s adherents are strictly vegan and what can be safer or more healthy that that?
